Singapore censors confirm ban of Zahari’s 17 Years
The Singaporean censors have retained the ban on Martyn See´s documentary Zahari’s 17 Years, as the film maker reports on his website. See had re-submitted three of his films for re-classification as a “test” of the liberalisation of the Films Act. The film contains extensive interviews with Said Zahari, who was kept in jail as a political prisoner without a trial for 17 years. See uploaded the film to a couple of video sites, and therefore the documentary is easily available, in Singapore and elsewhere.
